Guatemala Photo of the Day – Setting the Beam

When you build a house there are a few very critical things. First, the foundation must be firm. Second, the main beams must be level and secure.

In this picture, we are setting the back beam for the house. This step took longer than I expected, but it was absolutely essential to building a house that will last for a long time in Guatemala. The funny thing is that this beam is probably not even noticed now that the rest of the house is built up around it. But it’s still there.

Your foundation and your central beam is essential to living a life that matters. Have you spent the time necessary to lay a firm foundation and to set a level beam?
